Incredible post! Great to see your research skills applied to Cream's evolution as a live band. I have often read about how the GD were blown away by Cream in '68 and its nice to have a lot more of this primary information directly from fans, musicians, and the band themselves.

I was groovin' to Cream and Hendrix years before the GD were even on my radar.

Will you be uploading this to your website?

It's there: - added a few details.

More on the 3/11/68 show -
The Dead's setlist is said to be: Cryptical>Other One>Cryptical>New Potato Caboose>Born Cross-Eyed>Caution Jam. McNally says in his bio, "After a brilliant Dead set, Cream came out to top them and attacked their instruments so hard they blew out their speakers; the Dead had to lend them equipment to get through the show."

I wasn't able to find some quotes I was looking for, though - I know Clapton's said more about the Dead than I was able to find. And I don't recall seeing a single quote by any of the Dead about Cream at all. There must be something somewhere....
